RE: Edits for George Kied (Keed) and Martha Underwood Keid

Back in August of 2015 you fulfilled photo requests for me for George Kied and Martha Kied (#146328470 & 146328591). They did not have stones, but you were able to look up the burial locations for both of them. I have tried to find where their daughter, Elizabeth Kied (Kidd), is buried...but have not been successful. I was wondering if you would be able to look up the plot information for me the next time you go to West Norwood Cemetery? I was very thankful to have the information on her parents. I have put a photo request in for Elizabeth Kied (#181928898).

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Hello, Thank you for doing the recent updates. More to come. I put the transcription for the Hughes Family Monument-it seems a bit large, but was the best I could do with 8 on it. As you manage Elizabeth's memorial could not put it under the picture so would you correct that, please. Shall send the additional info via edits. Thanks again and warm regards. Andrea

Any chance you could share a better resolution photo
We need transcription of all the names and dates?

Thank you in advance
Kind regards

RE: Edith Rose Constant 156302894
Thank you for your message-have done the edits. Sorry not to get back to you sooner, have been out of town.

I have information for more than 10 people for you. Have made a list with name & memorial# adding the additional info on one sheet that I could send or would you prefer that I go to each memorial?

You obviously have extensive records and are still adding memorials. Do you by any chance have a record for any additional Hursts? I am looking for : Henry Hurst 1827-1908 & wife Jane Hurst 1839-1912; their son Herbert Edward Hurst 1864-1938 and his wife Clara Cecelia Constant who is d/o Arthur Edward Constant & Celia Allen.

It is a great pleasure to work with you. Please let me know how you want me to send the edits. If it would be easier you can contact me directly at

Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

RE: Netherbury
I'm sorry to be dense, but what is an MI? How would I find out what people are entombed IN the church building? I have inquiries in to Dorset Family History, but have not heard back. Thanks again for your answer. When I was there for just one hour, the church was not open, naturally.

Hello. I noticed that you posted a grave for the graveyard at Church of St. Mary in Netherbury. Do you happen to know if there is a listing of whom is buried in the oldest part of the graveyard or any photos of the grave stones? They are quite old and when I was there a few years ago, I was unable to read them, mostly because I couldn't get in there. It is quite overgrown. I live in the US so cannot get there again soon. Do you know anyone who could help me with this. My Samways ancestors were burried there in the 1600's.
Thank you, Gina Sammis

RE: Stephen Philpott Low #153463114
Thank you for your message. I am sorry, I didn't realise I had requested the edit twice. My sincere apologies. However, Stephen is now no longer linked as spouse of Hannah Austin Low #153463169, so there is a bit of a hiccup in the system somewhere. Stephen had 3 wives, Emily Austin, Hannah Austin and Susannah Hoare. Thank you for your co-operation, it is much appreciated.

Thomas Brigg - Thank you
I have just seen your email with the pictures of my great great grandfathers headstone. Thank you so much this means a lot to me as I have been unable to get over to the UK and get to the cemetery. Thank you so much and every success with the Find a Grave initiative. Kind regards Jonothan Brigg

Family tree search tools in England
I am researching the Boston family tree.
I am trying to find where an ancestor possibly traveled by ship to the United States back in the 1600s. Would you happen to have any suggestions for ships registries?
Thank you,
Vince Boston

RE: James, Emily, James Dudley Rowland
HI again. looks like I may be able to personally visit my grandfathers grave. Can you tell me how to find the site within West Norwood? Thanks, Mike Rowland

I wish to thank you for sending me the photo of Seth Clark. As I live in Western Australia it is not possible for me to do it myself.
So thanks again,

Nancy .

They lived in the rectory with an address in Ilfracombe. Does that help?

RE: Rev Mackenzie at West Norwood
Just realized you are the same person who created the memorial!

All I have is the info on the 1901 census, listing the community in Devon. Hope that's what you wanted.

His widow Elsie married my grandmother's brother after she moved to Washington State.

Thank you for the photographs - glad there was enough left to see!

Would it be permissible to add them to our Ancestry tree - with a credit line?

And thanks for the tremendous number of memorials you have added to Find A Grave - so greatly appreciated.

RE: Walter Leslie Gauss
Thanks, I'd just seen the messages triggered by the transfers. Ideally each graveyard needs to be photographed systematically - I took a trowel and brush when I did these so uncovered the hidden names.

Walter Leslie Gauss
Thanks for suggestions. I was new to the site and had been a bit reluctant to edit someone else's entries. I've now added my extras to your two entries (for Annie and Leslie) and deleted the two I'd created. Apologies for messing things up!

Added by jonga on Apr 17, 2016 10:28 AM

Walter Leslie Gauss
Sorry to have ended up duplicating your entries for Walter Leslie Gauss and Annie Elizabeth Gauss (my grandmother). I was entering the father and his second and third wives, none of whom had been entered, and also photos of the graves, including the one of Walter Leslie's and Annie's grave, and their full dates of birth and links to her parents, but couldn't see how to do it without duplicating these two entries. Unless you could copy the extra details and photo to your entries it might be easier for you to delete them in this particular instance.

Thank you for catching my mistake. I transferred them to St George Hanover Square, which is their correct place of burial.
